Singapore has no shortage of impressive Sunday champagne brunch buffets. Sure, you could go moderate and visit one of the many cafés across the island for a brunch of eggs benny and a glass of bubbly, but really, where’s the fun in that? Here’s our roundup of champagne brunches that may break the bank, but are well worth it!

Earlier this year, Oscar’s at the Conrad Hotel unveiled a new mouthwatering brunch menu. The restaurant has one of the best spreads in Singapore, and guests can look forward to an expansive seafood bar with an international selection of freshly shucked oysters, Boston lobsters, and fresh sashimi. If seafood is not your thing, the carving station is guaranteed to be a crowd pleaser with roast ‘London Duck,’ Argentinian– or Chinese-style suckling pig, and oven roasted US prime rib. For crab lovers (and who in Singapore doesn’t love crab!), Oscar’s chefs bring you their personal creations inspired by their heritage and travels. Also, be sure to save some room for dessert, with the chefs making liquid nitrogen ice cream, flambéed crepes, pancakes, and more. Brunch hours: 12:30-3:30pm
Prices: S$49 Children (6-12 years old), under 5 years eat free; S$98 Adults, food only; S$118 free flow of selected cocktails, sparkling and house wines; S$158 free flow of champagne, house wines and selected cocktails
Lime at PARKROYAL on Pickering offers one of the longest buffet lunches on the island, which is ideal if you’re hoping to make it around to all of the different delicious food stations. Lime boasts the traditional buffet counters of fresh seafood with oysters, prawns, and sashimi, plus a carving station featuring lamb, Wagyu beef, and even German schnitzel. Lime also serves up some unique plates; the live foie gras station flambées foie gras with rhubarb relish or a sweet and sour berry compote. If you’re feeling like some local flavors, check out the Asian Kitchen where you’ll find traditional laksa, butter chicken, and more. The dessert station will likely catch your eye when you first walk in, complete with some startling offerings, most notably their signature red velvet nitrogen ice cream.
Brunch hours: 12:30-4:30pm
Prices: S$78 buffet with unlimited juices, coffee and tea; S$146 includes unlimited house pour wines and beers
The Line at Shangri-La is one of Singapore’s oldest Sunday champagne brunches, and although they may not have the largest spread on the island, they’ve worked hard at keeping their brunch a hot ticket. The Line contains your classic buffet brunch tables such as a Japanese booth with endless sashimi and handmade makis and a carving station. People who love appetizers, especially cheese lovers, will be in heaven, as the buffet offers over 30 types of cheese and ten styles of foie gras. Brunch hours: 12:00-3:00pm
Prices: S$108 Adult (Inclusive of unlimited soft drinks and juices); S$158 Adult (Inclusive of unlimited champagne, selected wines, beers, soft drinks and juices); S$54 Child (Inclusive of unlimited soft drinks and juices)
Leave the kid’s behind because the Sunday cocktail brunch at the Manhattan is Singapore’s first adults-only brunch. The menu here is decidedly American, complete with American oysters, Maine lobsters, and NYC-inspired handmade bagels. Don’t miss out on the pièce de résistance, the do-it-yourself Bloody Mary room where you can choose from a variety of fresh ingredients and make this much-beloved brunch cocktail to suit your taste. Also, be sure to take advantage of their full cocktail menu as the Manhattan was chosen earlier this year as Singapore’s top bar, according to Drinks International’s 50 Best Bars in the World list. Brunch hours: 11:30am-3:30pm
Prices: S$150 includes unlimited craft cocktails, beers and wines; S$195 includes the above, plus unlimited Billecart-Salmon Brut Reserve Champagne
